Vancity's take on Urban Agriculture

The city of Vancouver generally encourages UrbanAg - see here.

That's cool ! Some cities are less relaxed about what you can grow.

The most famous example being Julie Bass from Oak Park that was charged for a civil misdemeanor after replacing her front lawn with raised beds instead of a lawn after their yard was dug up due to sewage maintenance.

About this incident and others, Steven Kurutz wrote "The Battle of the Front Yard" in the New York Times.
